The following is a test of the Emergency Bullshit System:
“I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a community organizer, except that you have actual responsibilities.”
This was a test. Had this been actual bullshit, the statement you just read would have been followed by additional bluster, viciousness, and cynical appeals to your sense of patriotism. This concludes this test of the Emergency Bullshit System.
I was very, very tired when I wrote this. And, umm, it didn’t actually turn out to be a test. I’ve given up hope of ever seeing political issues debated with intelligence and clarity during my lifetime. How depressing.
